Run 52:00 [3] 8.7 km (5:59 / km) +220m 5:18 / km

I guess there's only one way to find out where your current limits are. My parts of Melbourne have their share of short sharp hills but no long (>1km) ones. There aren't too many options to run from Cassie's place that don't involve some significant hills (this happens when you're 100m above the valley floor). Initially I seemed to be handling it OK but was definitely struggling from about 25 minutes onwards, and ended up pulling up short of the hour I'd planned. Still seem to be a bit tired - I normally adjust faster than this.

Caught up with Zsuzsa and Henning while I was warming up (they live in the next block around from Cassie and Jim). Zsuzsa and I go back a long way, back at least to post-race interviews when I was doing the English-language commentary for JWOC in Romania. (If you're wondering how I came to be doing that, the answer is that I was doing World Uni Champs in Hungary the following week - not one of the more glorious weeks of my orienteering career as it turned out - and when the word got out that JWOC needed someone I thought I'd give it a go).

The dining room table converts to a table tennis table of sorts, which got a bit of use later in the day (I'm definitely out of practice).

And oddity of the day: according to Citystrides, Baerum has exactly 1000 streets. I logged three of them today.
